US President Donald Trump has warned the Islamic Republic of Iran that its continuous threats towards the US will “come back and bite you”. This comes after Iran vowed to exceed the Uranium enrichment level agreed in the 2015 nuclear deal.

On his tweeter handle, Trump noted: “Be careful with the threats, Iran. They can come back to bite you like nobody has been bitten before!”

Tehran is acting on its May 8 threat to suspend parts of the agreement in response to Trump’s re-imposition of crippling sanctions after withdrawing from it in May last year.

Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani said Wednesday’s decision to exceed the enrichment limit was in response to failure by other parties to the deal to keep up their promises and provide Iran relief from the U.S. sanctions.

The enrichment maximum set in the agreement is sufficient for power generation but far below the more than 90 percent level required for a nuclear weapon.
